* Tue Aug 24 2010
  - Fix minor build warning:
    powertop.x86_64: W: name-repeated-in-summary C PowerTOP
  - Update to version 1.13:
    * PowerTOP now supports Runtime Device Power Management, both in terms
      of enabling it via a suggestion as well as collecting statistics for it
    * PowerTOP now has support for reporting which application keeps the
      disk from powersaving mode (worth +/- 0.5W)
    * PowerTOP now has support for reporting AHCI Link power management
      statistics (worth 0.5W - 1W)
    * PowerTOP now supports the Audio power saving statistics so you can see
      if some app keeps your audio out of powersave (0.5W - 1W)
    * PowerTOP reports the use of "Turbo Mode" on Intel processors that
      support this (Core i7 and such)
    * We should have fixed all suggestions that previously didn't go away
      even though you hit the key to apply them
    * We don't turn on USB power management for USB input devices, they tend
      to break if you do
    * Be smarter about we report ethernet activity in the light of
      multiqueue networking
    * many translation updates
    * Recognize per cpu hpet in timer reporting
    * Various wifi power saving api changes/tweaks taken care of
* Sun May 09 2010
  - update to SVN rev 332:
    * fix wifi code for current kernels
    * show turbo mode explicitly
    * filter out percpu hpet timer wakeup events
    * ignore usb input devices, do not set/read suspend delay
    * add --pids command-line option
    * add HD audio power save suggestion
    * removed obsolete laptop_mode suggestion
    * updated manpage
* Tue Feb 09 2010
  - fix segfault: increase max lines from 5000 to 8000 for
    /proc/config.gz and abort if reaching limit
* Tue Mar 03 2009
  - Update to PowerTOP 1.11
  - Changes:
    * Fix compilation with PIC
    * polling hint now refers to /dev/cdrom instead of /dev/scd0
    * fix calculations for systems that vary in power draw proc info
    * Display mwait usage
    * fix EOF at input
    * add --version|-v option
    * spelling error in tips.
* Mon Jun 16 2008
  - Update to PowerTOP 1.10
  - Changes:
    * USB suspend statistics
    * support for iwl4965 power saving
    * Powertop now reports which C-states are supported by CPU/BIOS
    * Updated translations: ja, pt_BR, hu, id, zh (thanks!)
* Wed Nov 07 2007
  - Update to PowerTOP 1.9
  - Changes:
    * add support for mac80211 based wireless power saving
    * improve bluetooth inactivity detection
    * report USB activity (needs 2.6.24-rc kernel)
    * support the newly reported interrupt events in 2.6.24-rc
* Wed Oct 10 2007
  - Update to PowerTOP 1.8
  - Changes:
    * add suggestion to increase VM writeback timeout
    * add suggestion to enable INOTIFY in the kernel
    * fix socket fd leak, found by Nikerabbit on #powertop
    * Add support for deferrable timers (Scott Lamb)
    * Add active hint to enable USB autosuspend on Fedora 7
    * Show blue color if the cpu is 25% or more busy to indicate
      that idle wakeups no longer is the nr 1 power causer
      (Santiago Gala)
    * merge the -d option from Bill Nottingham (Fedora) to allow
      automated collection of data
* Mon Jun 18 2007
  - Update to PowerTOP 1.7
  - Changes:
    * add suggestion to disable TV out
    * add suggestion to disable Wake-On-Lan for unused ethernet
    * show P-states (frequencies)
* Sun Jun 10 2007
  - Update to PowerTOP 1.6
  - Changes:
    * Add suggestion to rf_kill unused wireless interfaces
    * Propose killing "sealert"; this is a new thing in F7 that wakes
      up 10 times per second for no reason
    * avoid showing the laptop mode hint when on AC - Val Henson
    * suggest enabling noatime to save disk IO's
    * suggest enabling SATA AHCI Link powermanagement
    * suggest enabling the SMP Power Aware Scheduler
* Mon May 28 2007
  - Update to PowerTOP 1.5
  - Changes:
    * fix resize-corrupts-screen-content bug
    * add interrupts to the wakeups/second data in the emulated
      (non-mobile) case
    * calculate a long term power usage from battery charge deltas;
      this should help people whos battery doesn't report discharge
      rates, and also will provide a less noisy datapoint
    * Add option to use `kill` on some known power hogs if they are
      actually waking up a lot:
    - beagle (even latest wakes up 10 times/second when not
    - hal (suggest to stop cdrom polling)
    - gnome-power-manager
      These only show if these actually wake up the cpu 'a lot';
      so if these get fixed then the suggestion will not display.
